Castor Church of England Primary School

Unicef Rights Respecting School

We are busy becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and have already gained our Bronze: Rights Committed Award.  We are making sure that everyone in our school understands and respects rights in all relationships by looking at the Convention of the Rights of a Child and how we can embed these in our daily lives.

Our young ambassadors have sought out pupil voice to help create a playground charter and ways we can promote children's rights within school.  Mr Brompton has shared messages with us in assemblies focusing on particular rights. One of these assemblies about gender equality motivated the children so much that the Castor Ambassadors wrote a letter to the BBC. To our surprise, not only did we get a reply from the BBC but the letter was re-tweeted on Twitter.  The children felt very proud that they had been listened to.

As a whole school, we have raised funds to support UNICEF's work in Syria and our latest achievement is to make a huge collection of 371 pairs of unwanted shoes in support of Clarke's Shoe Share project.  You can see how well we did in the aerial photo below of all the shoes we collected. 

We are now working hard to gain our silver award.
